Possibly the Best Ad For A Newspaper Ever
Adscam's George Parker brings to our attention an amazing ad for The Guardian created by BBH, London. The ad tells the well known story of the Three Little Pigs but with a modern twist. As the story unfolds, we see how it changes and how readers become intimately involved with the story through social media.
Parker writes, "A beautifully executed illustration of the power and interaction possible between traditional and digital media, and how this can rapidly and decisively change the public's perception and interpretation of the story."
Indeed. The ad truly captures how media works now and positions the paper (yea, an old school newspaper) as an important element in both telling the story and enabling other angles of the story to arise.
